#About Madrid's Large Park for the Madrid Natives

If you need to take a rest, or a place to let your kids run around, then Casa de Campo is the place for you.

Once it was just for royal family members, who used it as hunting grounds. It is also a forest created by King Philip II.

Today Casa de Campo is open to all. There are many walking trails and bike riding lanes, a fun amusement park, boats for sailing on the lake, sports facilities, wide greenhouse, food stalls with delicious local foods and few cafes and restaurants.

The park itself is spread on almost 20 square kilometers and is without a doubt the largest public park in Madrid. There is the large Madrid Zoo and Aquarium.

You can arrive at Casa de Campo from the cable car, leaving from Parque de Oeste.


Casa de Campo is not a must-see site in Madrid, but anyone with a little time to spare should make the trip.

#About the Park with the Egyptian Temple and Skates

Parque del Oeste is a designed park from the 21st century, with a beautiful view and a special atmosphere.

The park is located on the side of a hill, overlooking the Manzanares River. At the southern edge, on the Principe Pio Hill, there is the Debod Temple, an Egyptian Temple from the 4th century AD. The temple was brought here when the area, in southern Egypt, where it was located, was flooded by Lake Nasser.

Climb to the top of Parque del Oeste, to the Paseo Pintor de Rosales walkway, from which you can look at the park from above and watch amazing sunsets. Along the walkway are cafes where many of the cities well-off residents tend to sit.

#About the Park Whose Gardeners are Considered Artists

Parque del Buen Retiro is a central and important park in the Spanish capital, and the most beautiful. Its beauty and maintenance are special, and this is what has won the hearts of the Madrid residents.

The park, whose name translates to "nice and relaxing," is also a sculptor garden, and a place for relaxing in the middle of the busy city. So, if you were looking for a place to rest a little from the trip - this is the perfect place to pass the time.

The garden was established in 1633, in the time of King Philip IV. It should not be surprising that this area was used as his hunting grounds.

Water fountains, wooded groves, organized flower beds, neo-Classical columns, and impressive statues, all this can be seen here. If you like sailing, at the heart of the park there is a beautiful garden just for that.

Near the lake you can see the Alfonso XII monument, the large monument has a column in the center, and on top a statue of the king on a horse. The monument is in memory of the King of Spain.

One of the most beautiful buildings in the park is the Palacio de Cristal, a glass building that was built in 1887 and was a greenhouse. Today, it is an exhibit space.

Notice the statue of the devil located in the southern end of the park. It is located near the rose garden, and right nearby there is the largest book market in Madrid.

The population that comes here is usually really varied. It includes families with children, couples, and students from the area. It is only natural that performers would come here, like jugglers and artists, that come to show off their skills.

Many family attractions are offered for visitors: starting from sporting facilities, fountains and picnic areas, street performers and artists.


Bring a bottle of premade sangria, that can be purchased in ever supermarket or kiosk, and take a few hours in the park.

In the park there is a free wing of the Reina Sofía Museum for modern art. Enjoy!

#About the Royal Palace Gardens of Spain

Campo del Moro Palace Gardens is a sweet green place, beautiful and flowing with flowers, fountains, and statues. These gardens, next to the Royal Palace, were designed in the Romantic British Style, at the end of the 19th century.

From the garden gate a beautiful view is seen of the Royal Palace at the top of the hill, located across the well-maintained gardens, a view that is considered the best of the palace.

Until the fall of the monarchy in 1931, the palace gardens were used only by the royalty, and were closed off to the public. They were closed during the dictatorship of Franco, and only after his death, in the 1980's were they opened to the public.

The origin of the name, Campo del Moro, is in the camp of the Muslim Army, that in the 11th century made camp here, while preparing an attack on the old city fortress.
